Additional Details

  • Notre Dame l’Assomption served as the cathedral of Port-au-Prince for over a century, from its predecessor, a modest yet dignified brick building with a small central tower, to its twentieth-century replacement, an impressive twin towered structure which collapsed in the devastating 2010 earthquake centered near Port-au-Prince. A competition for the design of a new cathedral was held by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Port-au-Prince, with the support of Faith and Form Magazine and the Institut de Sauvegarde du Patrimoine National (ISPAN), the Haitian government agency charged with the safeguarding of structures and sites of historical significance, such as the cathedral.
